We start the show off by announcing the winner of the signed copy of Ashley Eckstein’s It’s Your Universe.

STAR WARSY STUFF [7:15]

Liam’s been playing Battlefront, the first. I’ve been playing Battlefront II again.

We saw Solo again. I have some thoughts about Enfys Nest’s theme and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. I make a mashup called The Good, the Bad and the Savareen (renamed after this episode was recorded).

Check out the video I made:

WHAT’S THAT SOUND? [16:55]

How did Ben Burtt make the sound for the Millennium Falcon?

NEWS [23:20]

Solo isn’t making as much money as projected. We talk about why that matters. Spoiler: It’s not the money.

In a year and a half, we’re told that there will be a single-player Star Wars video game: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. I’ll believe it when I see it. And I’m hoping it’s not just a lightsaber game.

The Poe comic is ending.

And some people are not nice on the internet.
